Qualcomm QCC 514X update: 3 voice technologies to supercharge your next product
Alango Company Newsletter
May 2021

Alango OnlyVoice™ Technology Ported onto Qualcomm® QCC5141, Available Now

Designers of Bluetooth earbuds and hearables using the Qualcomm® QCC5141—a premium low-power voice-enabled audio chip—can now offer end-customers improved voice clarity in noisy or windy environments by way of Alango’s OnlyVoice: an advanced voice acquisition technology relying on sensor fusion technology for devices incorporating acoustic microphones and a vibration sensor.
Check out the Press Release ➝

Available soon on QCC5141:

4 mic VoiceDefender

for over-ear/OTH headphones

Uniquely developed for headphones in over-ear/over-the-head form factors, VoiceDefender enables breakthrough voice clarity using a 2x2 mic configuration (two mics per earcup). Stay tuned - we expect to release the QCC514X port later this year.

Enhance your customers' watching and listening experience with VoiceFirst technology

Reduce loud sound effects and enhance the voice within TV and movie audio 

Forty-five percent of all surveyed Bluetooth headphone users report using their headphones to watch TV, movies, or videos, according to Qualcomm’s State of Play Report (link). Given the popularity of these devices for video watching, we’re excited to announce that VoiceFirst--a technology that enhances the voice content in videos by de-emphasizing background sounds--is available now on QCC514X. Ideal for headphones, earbuds, soundbars, and TVs, VoiceFirst helps users to hear and understand dialogue without them having to raise the volume to unsafe levels.

Focus on Automotive Voice Technologies
March 16, 2021
We've got something for you in this issue whether True Wireless Stereo is your true calling or Automotive Audio is more your speed.
How can technology help us to improve the in-car voice communication experience?
The challenge:

On a typical drive, you'll notice that automotive cabin noise comes from multiple sources:

  • the sound of the tires on the road
  • the engine and fans
  • the internal climate control or HVAC system
  • wind noise from an open window
  • and external weather such as wind and rain.

The difficulty in obtaining a clear, intelligible voice signal from the driver is deepened further by the strong acoustic echo that comes from multiple loudspeakers. No doubt, the car is a challenging environment for voice communication.

And not just for handsfree calls, either. So too, can human-to-machine communication (with a voice interface) and human-to-human communication (with rear seat passengers) be made frustratingly difficult by these acoustic conditions.

Read on to discover Alango’s vision for technology-enhanced voice communication inside the car.

Enhance the dialogue in movies, TV shows, and sports broadcasts with Alango VoiceFirst™ Technology
Movies immerse the viewer in a visual and auditory experience. Often, these elements compete rather than complement each other. Our ears are bombarded with music and sound effects that obscure the voices of the people on-screen. And it is the voice that matters most to our perception of a movie. Voice comes first.

1D VEP – Linear Microphone Array
A new linear microphone array iteration of Alango’s Voice Enhancement Package (VEP), which functions as an ASR pre-processor, has been released. The previous iteration of VEP – utilizing 2D microphone array beamforming - targets smart speaker applications. The new “1D VEP”, typically with 4 or more microphones positioned in one line, includes stereo acoustic echo cancellation and far-field beamforming – with auxiliary tools for direction extrapolation. 1D VEP is particularly suitable for implementation in a voice controlled TV, especially since the geometry of a TV does not typically lend itself to accommodate placement of a 2D microphone array.

Our Posts

We recently added a section to our website called “Our Posts”. This is a place for members of Alango to express what is on our mind with regard to the technology we provide to the world. “Our Posts” are typically informal. Sometimes we provide cultural or personal anecdotes with historic undertones that relate in some way to our technology. Other times we discuss important developments in the industry or even key regulatory issues that represent a significant change in the world of voice, hearing, or audio. Alango’s slogan is “DSP Technologies for Life” because the technologies we supply enhance communications enriching the human experience. This is a way of life for us and maybe you too. So please take a look at our posts and feel free to send a comment.

Alango's unique Automatic Volume and eQualization for Music and Entertainment (AVQ-Me™) technology is now availabel for headsets based on BlueCore5 Multimedia. Enjoying music in a mobile environment is often spoiled by strong, dynamically changing ambient noises. Volume and equalizer settings optimal for specific conditions quickly become not optimal or even uncomfortable. Trains, subway, buses are just a few examples of such dynamic environments. AVQ-Me™ technology significantly enhances mobile listener's experience by automatic compensation for changes in the ambient noise level and spectrum. The built-in microphone of a stereo headset is used to monitor the ambient noise conditions and the audio signal is amplified and equalized accordingly. You don't need to touch the sound controls again!
